Guggenbiller provides offensive lift

Collegiate Check-up


Maddie Guggenbiller has developed into the Yellowjackets’ regular designated player during her freshman campaign.

Last week she knocked in a game-winning run and she’s since built on that momentum.

The 2023 Fort Recovery High School graduate collected nine hits over four days for the Defiance College softball team.

During the doubleheader on May 2 against the Manchester University Spartans, Guggenbiller smacked three hits for two RBIs and walked twice. The Yellowjackets (14-23) swept the Spartans 10-3, 8-4.

Both RBIs against Manchester came in the fifth inning for Guggenbiller. In the first game she walked to push a run across while she doubled to left field in the second game.

She also had three hits and two RBIs in Saturday’s games against Mt. St. Joseph.

Guggenbiller contributed a two-RBI single in the third inning as Defiance fell 9-3 in the first game. She only had a single, a walk and a run during the 9-6 victory in game No. 2.

The FRHS grad was quiet during the 10-2 loss to Anderson on Sunday. She only walked in her first plate appearance. Game two was better for the freshman, who earned three hits and run, but the Yellowjackets still fell 10-6.


Noah Arbuckle

Jay County — 2020

Suffered a pair of losses for the Huntington University’s baseball team in the Crossroads League Tournament.

Arbuckle pitched 3 ⅓ innings of relief on May 2 against the St. Francis Cougars. He entered the game with a 4-3 lead in the eighth inning. He gave up three runs in the eighth, but the senior’s offense scored two runs in the top of the ninth to extend the game.

In the 11th inning, the Jay County grad gave up a walk and a single before the Foresters (30-21) moved to R.J. Anglin. Arbuckle’s replacement walked in the next two batters to give up the winning run.

Arbuckle got the start against the Marian University Knights on Saturday. He pitched 5 ⅓ innings, in which he gave up 10 hits and six runs. The Knights scored two runs against the senior in the fourth, fifth and sixth before exiting the game for the last time this season.


Crosby Heniser

Jay County — 2022

Pitched against one batter in the Manchester University baseball team’s 15-9 loss to Rose-Hulman Fightin’ Engineers on Sunday.

Heniser entered the game when the Spartans (16-24) loaded the bases in the bottom of the eight and trailed by six runs.

The Jay County graduate induced a ground ball from Rose-Hulman’s Mason Rasmussen to record the final out of the inning.

Manchester couldn’t get the six runs needed to extend the game and Heniser’s outing.
